Just a little FYI, the fil


Just a little FYI, the filters for using night shot camcorders are actually designed to let you activate the the mode while in normal lighting. I understand that in full daylight, you could use the infrared mode to see through clothing in certain situations. This is because of how the video chip reacts to light. Many modern pick-up chips have a great deal of sensitivity to infrared light, so they have an infrared filter over the chip. In Sony camcorders (and I assume other folks would have to do the same) the Nightshot Plus mode, removes that filter. But some users claim Sony also has some sort of electronics to prevent the Nightshot mode from working in daylight. I don’t see that it would be neccessary as in daylight, infrared overexposes seriously. So anyway, if your camcorder doesn’t have the ability to remove the built-in infrared reduction (to match what our eyes see) then it can’t be used with infrared lighting (or in what we see as total darkness.)
